2020 Kia Telluride Blurring the Lines of Luxury

Wednesday, September 25th, 2019


Just a few months ago, the 2020 Kia Telluride received a Top Safety Pick Plus rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), continuing to prove that this large SUV is as safe as it is luxurious. Speaking of which, the Kia Telluride also did a number on sales for Kia Motors, with the Telluride SUV making up the bulk of sales during its release in March 2019. We’re nearing the end of 2020, and the Kia Telluride continues to rake in the profits, and we know why. The audience for Kia Motors has been expanding in recent years, especially after the release of the Kia Stinger. These days, Kia has gained the attention of consumers who can treat themselves to an SUV selling for $40,000 or more.

Now keep in mind, that’s not the starting MSRP of the 2020 Kia Telluride. This large SUV starts at $31,690 (plus destination fee) for a bare bones LX trim. The price range doesn’t even break $40k until the high-end SX trim (four trims in total make up the Telluride lineup). So what does this all mean? When it comes to the 2020 Kia Telluride, consumers are opting in for all the goodies they can get, and why wouldn’t they?

 According to a report from Cox Automotive, consumers are increasingly leaning towards high-end trims or mid-end trims with the option of adding on various packages. Of course, who could say no to the 2020 Kia Telluride SX? Boasting a long list of technology and safety advancements, such as a panoramic sunroof, Nappa leather upholstery, automatic high-beam headlamps, 20-inch wheels, a Harman/Kardon stereo, a heated steering wheel, 10.25-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, parking distance warning for going forward and reverse, rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist, blind-spot collision avoidance, and much more.
